Pets at Home
Recently we brought a dog from a rescue home, so obviously there was the few weeks of purchasing items for the little love. We started off with independent places and supermarkets, and then decided to try out Pets at Home.
We had previously thought they were a rather expensive company, having only cat items to buy to use as comparison. However, after shopping around for extenable leads and so on, we found they are quite competitive and so deserve a lot more credit than I had previously given them.
First of all I will comment on the Staff in the store. I know that this opinion will range depending on the store. The staff were friendly and polite, helpful, without being too over bearing (following you around constantly asking if you are okay) and so I found this pleasing. When you asked for assistance they were happy to.
On entering the shop, you are welcomed by a bright atmosphere. The store looks very clean and well set out with the different areas signed. There is also an area with information and leaflets concerning your pet.
The shop supplies not only dog accessories, but also products for cats, small furry animals (rabbits, gerbils rodents etc.) fish, and birds.
There seems to be a lot of choice for each animal group, and there are toys as well as a comprehensive range of health products for animals, including flea treatments,vitamins, wipes, shampoos and other medications.
There was a very wide range of pet food regarding dogs, with different brands and foods for different ages. Pets at home also have their own brand of foods and some toys.
If it is an unusual accessory you are looking for, the chances are, pets at home will have it unlike Supermarkets or other stores.
As I mentioned above, the products are priced quite competitively, and are well displayed in uniform units to allow an easy comparison with other stores as in terms of food.
We brought an extendable lead from the store, priced at about £16, however, the design was one we could not find elsewhere and was a lot stronger looking than others we had seen on the market. In this case we didn't mind paying a pound or 2 more to ensure the quality was there. Some products can be brought from pound stores or discount stores at cheaper prices (poopy bags and rope toys for example) but these discount stores do not have the range that Pets at Home has.
A good go-to pet store, especially for those accessories you cannot find anywhere else. Some products may be a little bit more expensive than others, but overall, a good value store with all you need. I give it 4 stars.
Summary: Your one stop pet shop!
